I'm pretty sure the Ubuntu restricted package is not for the Kubuntu 
distro and installs the Mp3 support for Gstreamer, Amarok uses xine.

When I need to install any support for restricted formats I find this 
wiki page very useful

To play MP3's in Kubuntu you need to do a apt-get install 
libxine1-ffmpeg or use your favourite package installer (mine is 
synaptic) to install the package libxine1-ffmpeg.
